Optimisation of nanostructured features for enhanced antibacterial response

Inspired from the insect wing nanostructures, we have fabricated several surfaces that have efficiently killed bacterial cells. However, small changes in nanoscale features immensely affects the bacterial killing rate. There is a need to optimise certain parameters in the fabrication step such that an enhanced bacterial killing rate is achieved.

Investigation of roughness and wettability model of nanostructured surfaces for biomedical devices

All nanostructured surfaces have unique surface roughness which mathematically describes by the surface architecture or the geometry. Moreover, the nanostructured surfaces may have variable water contact angle values due to the combination of surface roughness and surface composition. The correlation of surface roughness and wettability of nanostructured surfaces to the antibacterial activity becomes significant in designing a numerical model for biomedical devices.
